Hi everyone I introduced myself back on page 300 ish and have been lurking since then. I read the forum every day and you've all given good advice and I've enjoyed the banter.
My training has been on and off I injured my ankle early February and it took a month to heal properly with no discomfort but I still hope to gain a PB sub 3.30 on the day (fingers crossed) see how it goes on the day really. My main aim is to try and enjoy the race and finish.
I've enjoyed reading all your posts and maybe hope to catch up with some of you in paris, hope you all have a good week and a good race.
I'm the same as you MY9 I really want to get sub 3.10 in paris marathon 2013. Been rejected from London so many times so desperate for this. I am not sure if its a little too much for me to achieve but I'm gonna give it a bloody good go.
I ran Brighton marathon in 2011 and with little training got 3.55 which I was pleased with. I ran Brighton again in 2012 with a bit more training and got 3.31.
Do you guys think its achievable with a proper training plan to knock off 22 mins. I do the Hastings half marathon which has some monster hills in 1.30. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
Hello everyone, I'm all signed up and ready for action..............well almost.

I have been reading this thread for some time now from page 1 to present and feel its about time I introduced myself. I have been running for about 4 years now having done loads of 10k, half marathons and done the Brighton marathon twice. So desperately want to do London marathon but always getting rejected in ballot and found myself looking around for other marathons to do, and here I found what I'm looking for Paris 2013.
Looking forward to the next 5 months training and bring on Paris 2013.
Hello everybody, I'm new to this and wondered if anyone could give me some info.
I did not gain a place in London AGAIN.........so I am looking at doing paris. Is the course quick ? I am going to train like mad this time and try for a qualifying time so london will be guaranteed next year. Also how long does registration normally stay open. Is the event run well by the organisers etc. gonna be quite expensive to do this so I'm still not sure.
Everyone seems to be doing well in training on here...............well done. I ran the Hastings half today and did better than expected 1.32 with no pains from my knees so hopefully the injury has finally cleared up. I feel a bit more optimistic now for the marathon. Going to do a slow 16-18 miles on Wednesday and same again Sunday. Both nervous and excited for marathon day.....................let's hope the weather is a bit cooler this year.
